All,

Just read this link on the BBC website ref Panorama & Scientology

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/6650545.stm

I was rolling around on the floor with the line "When you have paid as much as £100,000, you get to Operating Thetan Level Three and learn about "The Incident". "

Surely this sounds like something to be taught by egg heads to egg heads at Darkest Shrivenham?

...and to think that all this time I believed that "The incident" involved wet celery and an egg whisk in the cark park at Pirbright....hmmm....

Mr.B.

The thing is you can walk into any book store and buy a L Ron Hubbard SF novel and know what they belive in for 7.99 no less so its a compleat waset of time and money actualy joing Sientology.

So, 100K gets you this far in the story... what do you think the next chapter would consist of?

Let us know your thoughts on what revelations Thetan Level Four (or would it be 2?) would or should contain...

Are you trying to suggest that
"75 million years ago an intergalactic space alien lord called Xenu kidnapped Thetans to earth, dumped them in volcanoes and blew them up with atomic bombs" is not quite accurate? and perhaps utter tripe?

Surely even you would part cash to find out what happens in the next chapter?

SCIENTOLOGY APTITUDE TEST

Write down a well known phrase that uses the words 'fool', 'money' and 'parted'.

"I'm a fool and deserve to be parted from my money" :p
-- The correct answer.

Level 8 claims that Jesus was a Paedophile and that Hubbard is the anti-Christ.

That's nothing, I've been playing Elder Scrolls IV for two months and I'm a level 30 Battle Mage. Only cost me £30 as well, these scientologists don't know what they're doing.

No need old boy, because to tell you the truth - a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away I was known as Luke Skywalker and I took Xenu to the cleaners. 8)

Isn't Xenu the Warrior Princess played by Lucy Lawless? [ ooh, now there's a name to reckon with ]..
 
#12
Darth Xenu? now it all comes clear...

They either ran out of Volcanoes or atom bombs... and came up with the Death Star (with trues Germanic efficiency).

Does that also mean that Dantooine is possible a mis translation of Doon Toon?

crikey...
 
#13
Fcuk me, Dantooine (or is it Tatooine?) full of Geordies ? No wonder Darth Gimpboy wanted to wipe them out.
 
#14
Fcuk £100,000: just use wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Incident_(Scientology)

If anyone is able to make sense of that article, then do let me know.
 
#15
Well, I've got the cheat codes for Level Four so I don't give a fcuk.......and I got them off a website called giveusyourcashyoumong.com for only £ 99,000!

Bats, thank you for making my day. :lol:

I've just been reading that wiki entry and I've been laughing like a hysterical loon over the Gorilla Goals, Bubble Gum incident and the R6 incident, much to the consternation of the fellows around me.

This Hubbard chap was smoking some serious sh1t. Where can I get some? I want to see the "three-D, super colossal motion picture" for 36 days".

The real fun bit is that L Ron is [ was] a quite enjoyable Sci-fi writer who churned out some readable escapism.. He noted in more than one article that writing was okay but the real money was to be made in religion and said, if he could create his own, he'd be a millionaire.. f88kin' sod actually did it and found enough ' true believers/followers' to make it pay.. now it just keeps going on all on its own thanks to clever marketing and the cache of having Movie stars endorse it.

still, similar thing happened with some guy who got himself offed by the Romans and his followeres claimed it was a scam and he came back from the dead as God.. took a bit to convince others but it seems to have caught on and quite a few guys make some bucks on the story, both the funny dressing boys in Rome and the TV hucksters.

so, who's to say L Ron got it wrong?

whatever happened to whatisname's attempt to start an alternate religion in his garage? Pagan Odin worshippers or something? thought I'd be a High Priest by now with a bevvie of nublie female acolytes helping me strain my precious bodily fluids..

Evil Space-Lord Xenu out of Scientology bears a striking resemblance to evil Space-Lord Ming the Merciless out of Flash Gordon. Can this be coincidence? I think not. Clearly there is some sort of evil space conspiracy afoot. Oh, and L. Ron is obviously Flash Gordon incarnate.



Evil Xanu : A Bit of a Lad





Evil Ming : Upside Down Head

Maybe they're on to something. :?
